Diana, Stephenie and Carol

Just finished watching "Julie and Julia", the movie about the woman who blogged about spending one year cooking every recipe from Julia Child's cookbook.

I wish I could say "Wow, that was so inspirational!"  But all it really did was remind me that Diana Gabaldon and Stephenie Meyer would probably be like "Um, yeah, whatever" if they ever saw my blogs. Especially Stephenie, since there are like 40 million blogs about the Twilight series. And Diana... well Diana has degrees in Zoology, Marine Biology and Ecology. Something tells me she's not going to look highly on a blog that obsesses over Jamie Fraser's mojo... and uses words like "shizzle".

I know, I know, that sounds really negative. But Julia Child, herself was like "Um, yeah, whatever" when she found out about Julie's blog. I have to be realistic, ya know?

On the positive side, Julie published a book about her blog - which was later made into the movie I just watched. And before all of that, she seemed to be happy, just cooking and blogging. Kindof like me... only I'm just reading and blogging, right?

So the moral of the story? The moral is that I should keep writing my blogs... because they make me happy. Being a Twilight/Outlander fan makes me happy. Meeting with my friends and talking about these books makes me happy. And isn't that what's important?

Yeah. I think it is. That... and Jamie Fraser's kilts and his big... hard... um, dirk (it's a knife, geez!)  And Edward Cullen's big, iron bed. That he doesn't even need.... the one with the flowers... that Bella doesn't even WANT to sleep on, because she's a FREAK!

Yeah... I love my blogs. :)


  1. Soooooo heart Meryl in this movie. And Stanley Tucci. And Jane Lynch. And even Amy Adams (tho the Julie part is not quite as engrossing as the Julia part). Meryl is totally, 100% Jocasta in my Outlander movie--no one else gets near the part.

    BTW, we are making boeuf borgannioine (sp??) for New Year's Eve...

  2. LOL no way really? That's awesome. DON'T BURN IT! :)

    PS - Stanley Tucci is SO sexy.

    1. So relieved that I am not the only one, ha!

  3. Girlies,
    I know this post is YEARS old, but I gotta say two things.
    1. Stanley Tucci was positively, heartbreakingly marvelous in that film.
    2. Of course you need to keep on with the blogs. It makes you happy, it makes us happy, it gives everyone a place to really really love these books, and it's really a credit to how good the story is. Think about it. You two girls know each other because you're sisters. You don't know me, nor I you, but we know we are good people because we love JAMMF and CEBRF. The only creative thing I am doing (re: Julie/Julia) is reading them. I'm in DoA for the fourth time. It makes me happy to have them in my mind, I was going to apply for a job in Wilmington, NC and my first thought was the Outlander connections. :P

    Carry on.

    1. 1) True. And so is this reply, which you will probably never see, either. LOL
      2) You rock, chica!
      3) Did you get the job? :)
